Grandmother, mother and daughter donate together
Strength in numbers- or family numbers, that is.
Nisswa, Minnesota resident 16-year-old Sabrina Aldin traveled to Baxter, Minnesota, to donate blood at the Heritage Assembly of God Church with her mother and grandmother in March. A first time donator, Sabrina mustered the courage to donate because of the support from her fellow family members, who have been donating for the past decade.
The story is especially prominent today because more and more families are coming out to donate blood together, participating in blood drive challenges and giving back to their own communities. To participate in a blood drive in your area, visit http://www.redcrossblood.org/.
